and its nato allies could be aimed at russia. and the u.k. claim that the failing economy and cutbacks are increasingly driving more britons to suicide. live from moscow twenty four hours a day you're watching t.v. . well breaking news this hour ten miners have been killed after a me thing exploded in russia's northern cali republic let's get more now from. here with a smile of in the studio what more can you tell serena well at this point we know that there have been two hundred fifty nine people inside the mine at the moment of explosion the minister emergencies is saying that they have taken out two hundred forty two people have led them out to the surface safely there was a question of seventeen people missing ten of those have been confirmed dead at
5:02 am
this point seven are still missing but the minister of emergency says that there is a high chance that they will be recovered safe and sound and alive so we're still waiting of course for the numbers to change as usual in these circumstances. prime minister medvedev has already said financial aid should be allocated to the families of those who were killed in the amount of two million rubles that's roughly sixty six thousand dollars if we can also say that so far this year this has been the largest in terms of human life lost the biggest biggest explosion of this year actually the biggest explosion for over the past year as a matter of fact of course we're still waiting for the numbers to change again as i said but hoping that they're not going to get any higher. at this point so far we just we haven't even gotten any pictures able we're hoping to get those soon and do we have any idea what caused this loss to the investigators know at this stage of
5:03 am
course it's a good question at this point again we're having somewhat conflicting reports reports coming from the minister of emergencies who are at this point saying that there have been no increase of methane and carbon dioxide levels documenting documented at this mine which would be one of the primary reasons what we do know that a criminal case has been launched into the breach of safety regulations at the mine which is. somewhat surprising possibly to the owners of the mine because just recently it has won several awards when it came to the. two of the labor conditions meaning that as far as safety instructions following and the conditions overall for workers at the mine were actually up to par so of course we're waiting to hear more from the investigators as of now ok thanks so much for that update thank you. and there's the mr rebel group is claiming responsibility for ongoing violence in mali's northern city of god help us off the gunman in those to surprise guerrilla
5:04 am
attacks over the weekend the city was rocked by two suicide bombings ever fronts maintains the military campaign in mali to force out is the mists is almost complete will correspondents gonzalo one show reports for r.t. . the situation in mali is obviously going to be gruesome and there are more than enough indications of last friday the country was shaken by the very first terrorist attack in its history but the boarding to the witness report of what was carried out by a fifteen year old suicide bomber and that of arab descent the bomber was the only one killed after the detonation a few hours later responsibility for the attack that was claimed by the measure was a jihad is one thing to remember here is that this is a bastard as are territory and therefore it is very difficult to control this attack is just another example confirming that despite the news reports of the french army having taken over gal timbuktu into doubt there is still a long way to go before jihadists are ousted from the country in severe artie's
5:05 am
crew was given access to the civil defense camps and were volunteers and civilians are preparing to fight against the jihadists the f.l. and they get down to core a local pro-government militia movements that account for a total of two thousand eight hundred operatives but do not support the strategy chosen by the french in mali and joining forces in fighting the terrorists completely share the same goals so what they did was a really bad service to us all there was not really about the army itself al qaeda had been operating on mali and territory for a number of years now they have all those and they keep getting more by kidnapping white people for ransom insurance pays them to have their citizens returned and then the terrorists have cash to buy weapons if you talk about al qaeda there's no way the army can fight it because she it's terrorism and that action going to find out is that those paramilitary who know the terrain well say that fighting a war they cannot take part in is meaningless one thing all these paramilitary
5:06 am
groups have in common is their patriotism and zeal to protect their country and. i'm ready to go it's all lengths i'm raised to give my life right now to save my family up there in the north because we're all here have family see i believe france will stop these attacks for a while or and the french troops leave they will start all over again because the criminals are still out there hiding them on the civilians not all of them have been caught really need to be given the mandate to complete this mission our own we're ready for it although we can do it because we grew up in the north we know the terrain and the people so we're the only ones who can stop them but find them in the villages in the desert where we know every corner and every part of land. over all while the jihadists forces are taking over their land kidnapping people and using suicide bombers to fight for their cause the civilian population remains
5:07 am
the country's most vulnerable group. well. he's going to check and spoke to russia's ambassador to the un vitaly churkin about the possible reasons for the ongoing conflict the full interview is on air at eighteen forty five g.m.t. or you can watch it on our website dot com but here's a quick preview for you. open a question of that of spring was the dramatic events in libya. we're in the course of the crisis of course a lot of weapons were brought into libya and there was a lot of there were lots of weapons of as it is but still many more weapons were brought into libya during the recent hearings which then secretary of state clinton had in the house of representatives one of the congressman said that they had information that cut out with a wink and nod as he put it from the united states brought in twenty thousand tons of weapons into libya and you know twenty thousand tons you can arm is small
5:08 am
terrorist army and so on of course this is exactly what has happened in mali definitely we see a spillover from the libyan crisis to to a neighboring country and most likely if the spillover has affected other places as well for instance it may well be there are many indications to that effect that the terrorist attack. in the in the jury had something to do i mean close to the libyan border also had some sort of libyan connection in terms of people maybe weapons terrorists emanating from libya participating in that attack. u.s. missile defense shield in europe is under further scrutiny after a leaked congressional report revealed the system may be unfit for purpose the study claims the shield may not be able to protect america and its nato allies from a potential iranian missile strike the report also acknowledges moscow's concerns
5:09 am
of the us system undermines russia as you could to terence their hour over the missile shield has strained relations between the two countries as washington refuses to give moscow with legally binding guarantees the system is not aimed against russia president obama had promised to be more flexible on the subject after his reelection but some observers doubt the u.s. will give up its political ambitions. i don't think it was ever intended to protect against iranian missiles something in fact that do not even exist iran has no nuclear weapons nor do they have capability to launch a missile all the way to the united states clearly this missile defense system has always been about surrounding russia and china and that's why it doesn't the math doesn't work when you look at having protected against an iranian system fact as nato is expanding in its encircled moment of russia i think we're only going to see
5:10 am
more of these so-called again missile defense deployments into various nato countries looking at how this all of our runs our country today how the corporations control our congress i think it's clear that congress will continue to support these systems the new secretary of defense that obama has nominated chuck hagel former republican senator from nebraska was one of the co-sponsors in the senate of the missile defense program so he clearly is a strong ally of the system. a suicide rates are up in the u.k. but experts blame a combination of reasons including the country's failing economy the issue is prompting calls for greater government action on season three farmer reports. for the last year and a half thorn has been coming to terms with the tragic death of

a son aged just twenty three toby took his own life riding his spinal words on the back of a bank statement after racking up a three thousand pound overdraft and a five thousand pounds student debt it was just the shock it wasn't from one but had a history of depression or mental illness or even had come across as being down or depressed you know in the last few weeks months of his life if anything he came across as someone that you know didn't have a care in the world following his death and became a trustee for the charity piracy which aims to prevent suicide among young people from a home in cornwall she even runs her own blog giving advice but it's a battle her charity and similar ones around the u.k. are struggling to win suicide is on the increase according to latest figures accounting for six thousand deaths between twenty ten and twenty eleven a rise of seven percent so why the increase while an inquest ruled that toby's

financial problems were written for a factor to his suicide experts now say that a mailing u.k. economy is partly to blame for the recent surge in deaths nationwide areas of high unemployment such as camden here in london are among those worst affected and it's a problem compounded by cutbacks in mental health services the double whammy effect of the recession is that people are becoming more distressed more anxious and therefore more at risk of wanting to take their own lives at the same time whether sterrett it cuts means that we have fewer psychiatric beds that the crisis care isn't there and if that isn't enough the growth of same day loan companies and intimidating debt collectors are adding to the pressures people are feeling according to researchers brighton university we have some very very good regulations to protect people. it's problematic lead thinks problematic debt collection however appears that big particularly well it's just because these

practices do it are in response the u.k. government has announced plans to crack down on aggressive bailiff's from next year late night visits will not be allowed and restrictions will be put on what property can be seized they are also spending over a million pounds on research as part of a suicide strategy plan but that is only one very small step in the right direction for someone like dan there's no easy answer i mean one thing i've learned more about thirty five than i ever wanted to know but i've done a lot of reading and rethought and i think strangely complex hopefully entirely the trend will go down with what we need to be doing andrew farmer for r.t. london. well still to come this hour a guessing game and a few minutes we'll explain why many ecologists new clothes outraged by the forces decision to go ahead with a multibillion dollar deals with the west that's story just ahead.

going to the streets they are going on the streets willingly they don't really need any opposition calls for due process because the whole country is in a standstill there's nothing moving forward because there is no real administration at pressing the people needs and the people demand the actual anger in the streets so the only solution that i can see and any sane person can see that the opposition leader mr brotherhood and all the different political factions to be in a quality of government that would be the only solution and the only way out because at that moment this government will take responsibility for any reform that's going to be as one of the happening in the country the idea of just excluding everybody out of the government post revolution country in a country that's acting calling for democracy where there is no real parliament in session that can hold the president or the government accountable to the failures of administering the country and then refusing to have
